Though it happened in the streets of Brooklyn
Plus I played the whip real low cause my face was rooklin

from MF DOOM (Ft. Ghostface Killah) – Angelz Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Although Ghostface is from Staten Island, he’s well-known enough in Brooklyn that he has to hide in the car so he won’t be seen. Rooklin' could mean that his face is known in Brooklyn for being a swindler (“rook” is slang for a con man)
